? >> well, i'm not convinced that the furloughs will come about. i would say that president obama has shown a partiality to listening to the tourism industry. so i'm not sure it is really going to happen. i think there could be a change of mind. but overall america is just recovering from what the industry is calling a lost decade, where a series of idealogical arguments, and the 9/11 border changes really flattened out tourism for the united states when it was booming in the rest of the world. >> michael: it is almost too easy to complain too about how bad air travel has gotten. but what the american citizens have to go to is nothing compared to what foreign visitors have to go through to get into america. >> if you are a male from a predominantly muslim country, you have the most severe requirements. other than some european countries, you have to now have a visa and have that visa approved at an american consulate. all of that is hard for a country like russia, you could travel over a thousand miles, get to the consulate and be rejected. even if you get your
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w

pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here in boston. he says this is a major development to him and it is going to be used in the investigation. >> what we know -- a youtube channel which tamerlan tsarnaev put up, had a link to and had a section called terrorists and had had a link to this man. the link was taken down but we have found the video that appeared to link to. he was a militant from azerbaijan. the better known name here is del gato. wha
